The image samples in the official gallery aren’t full-resolution, but you can get a pretty good idea of the bokeh, color and contrast properties of the photos taken with the 70-200 f4 VR.

Optional accessories and add-ons

The filter thread size on the 70-200 f/4G VR is 67mm, which means you’ll want to be looking at purchasing 67mm filters. Nikon also makes their own filters, namely 67mm Circular Polarizer II, 67mm Soft Focus Filter and 67mm Filter NC (Neutral Color).

67mm Snap‐On front lens cap LC-67, Rear Lens Cap LF-4, Bayonet Hood HB-60 and Flexible Lens Pouch/Semi-Soft Case CL-1225 — these are supplied in-the-box with the lens, but you can always buy replacements if required.

If you intend to shoot with this lens plus DSLR camera mounted on a tripod, it is recommended that you purchase the optional RT-1 tripod collar ring.

The RT-1 tripod collar ring allows for a more balanced weight distribution when mounting your camera plus a long, heavy lens on a tripod. This works by allowing you to attach the tripod to the foot of the collar ring instead of to the camera body.

The 70-200mm f/4G VR lens can be used with the following AF‐I/AF‐S teleconverters:

Note *: Autofocus is available only with cameras that offer f/8 support.

The full list of compatible accessories is available at Nikon USA and in the lens manual.
